Need a little gift inspo for your nearest and dearest this holiday season? Here are six gifts that will keep you in the good books for many months to come.
GoPro Hero6 Black
The latest camera from the tech powerhouse boasts a range of impressive features. From stunning video-enabled slow-mo playback to inbuilt waterproof housing, voice command control and the ‘best image quality yet’. Throw in the Karma Grip for stabilized footage, and you’ve got one impressive gift.
Your go-to for staying warm and protected in the backcountry this winter. This GORE-TEX big mountain jacket from Arc’teryx is fleece lined, waterproof, windproof and offers freedom of movement for the wearer. It’s also good for kicking back by the fire.
Mammut Barryvox Package
Know someone who’s stepping into the beautiful backcountry this winter? Mammut’s Barryvox packages have all the equipment they will need for freeriding, off-piste runs or ski touring. Lightweight and easy to use, even when wearing gloves, this equipment is some of the best in the industry.
SMITH I/O7 Goggles
Gear up and get ready. Smith’s ChromaPop Sun Red I/O7’s offer a maximized field of vision as one of their largest spherical lenses in the line. Pair it with one of Smith’s helmets and the user experience will reach next level as each is integrated to work with the other.
Atomic Backland 117
If you’ve ever been on a CMH heli-skiing trip and fallen in love with the equipment, you may want to know that these skis are the CMH powder go-to. With a 117mm waist, these skis are gold for aggressive skiing on deep days, or for shredding spines and ripping harder snow. In the words of Atomic, ‘Go big. Go deep’.
Glacier Exploration in the Cariboos
Give the ultimate gift of heli-accessed travel. Explore pristine, remote mountains and walk among glacial giants virtually untouched by man. Cap off your days with gourmet dining and night sky watching from the comfort of a luxury wilderness lodge.
Happy holidays, everyone!
